Third film starring the thunder god has the series’ best opening, while ‘Coco’ continues to sell tickets in Mexico.
Marvel’s god of thunder proved mighty indeed this weekend at the box office, with Thor: Ragnarok posting a $121 million domestic bow.
That makes Ragnarok far and away the best-opening Thor film to date, easily besting the $85 million mark set by 2013’s Thor: The Dark World and the $65 million opening of 2011’s Thor. The overseas gross to date on Thor: Ragnarok totals #308 million, giving the Marvel Studios release a $431 million worldwide total.
Meanwhile, Blade Runner 2049 slipped to seventh place at the domestic box office with a $2.3 million gross in its fifth weekend in release. That brings the movie’s total to $85.6 million domestic and $155 million foreign for a $241 million worldwide tally.
And in Mexico, Pixar’s Coco continued to sell lots of tickets ahead of its Nov. 22 release in the United States. The animated feature added $10.4 million to its total, which now stands at $27.6 million in Mexico alone.
